Community and Patient Preference Research (CaPPRe) has worked with Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia to conduct research with men who have metastatic prostate cancer.
CaPPRe are specialists in conducting research to determine people’s preferences. We are looking at ways to gather a large number of views from people on the benefits and risks of various treatment options. This type of research is called ‘Patient Preference Research’. The aim is to help those who assess new treatment options to understand how people value certain benefits and risks of drugs.
This study has aimed to improve the understanding of what is important to patients in the care of their prostate cancer and help to make better treatments available in Australia for prostate cancer patients.
This study is no longer recruiting participants.
